TNF-related weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) is a member of the TNF superfamily. This cytokine has overlapping signaling functions with TNF but displays a much wider tissue distribution. TWEAK is expressed in a variety of tissues, including the adult heart, pancreas, skeletal muscle, small intestine, spleen and peripheral blood lymphocytes. (1). It has pleiotropic biological functions including proapoptotic, proangiogenic and proinflammatory activities (2-3). TWEAK also induces skeletal muscle atrophy (4). It can function as both as a type II transmembrane protein and as a cleaved soluble protein. TWEAK is the ligand for the FN14/TWEAKR receptor.

N-terminal Sequence Analysis
State of Matter
Predicted Molecular Mass
The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human TWEAK is 18.3 kDa.
This recombinant protein was 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) with BSA as a carrier protein. pH 7.2 – 7.3 with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives.
Storage and Stability
The lyophilized protein should be stored desiccated at -20°C. The reconstituted protein can be stored for at least one week at 4°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted protein, aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
